Mary E. Ware, was born on January 18, 1937 and raised in Cincinnati Ohio by the late Izola Foster –Matthews and Ernest Matthews, stepfather.
Mary was joined in marriage to the love of her life Paul A. Ware, Sr. (deceased). Mary and Paul were blessed with nine (9) children; five (5) sons and four (4) daughters.
Mary epitomized motherhood. She was a testament to that old saying, “you can only have one mother.” Mary was patient, kind and true. She asked nothing in return for the love she gave to her children. The kindness and compassion could be seen in her eyes and found in her embrace. She was a blessing and a gift, a treasure like no other and truly wonderful.
